Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down.
Yeah, we couldn’t destroy a single one.
And the history books forgot about us.
And the Bible didn’t mention us, not even once.

Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.
I have to go, I have to go.
Your hair was long when we first met.

Samson went back to bed, not much hair left on his head.
He ate a slice of wonder bread

And the Bible didn’t mention us, not even once.

I loved you first

But they’re just old light, they’re just old light.
Your hair was long when we first met.

Samson came to my bed.
Told me that my hair was red.

and came into my bed.

the mornin’ light,
And he kissed me till the mornin’ light.

Samson went back to bed, not much hair left on his head.
He ate a slice of wonder bread, and went right back to bed.

Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down.
Yeah, we couldn’t destroy a single one.

not even once.
